Usualy I try to avoid things that could distract from the actual
content too much. If it shall be accesible, table-less, hack-free
css and even work in the POS Internet Explorer ...

I wonder if there is such a thing as a typical Linux audio user. Things
as having fun seeing how things work might be somewhat common, but visual
preferences can be expected to vary almost as much as musical taste.

Using the design to get some message across is a nice idea.

Patrick, all in all I think you overestimate the importance of the design,
and I say that as a designer ;)

Anyway, next one and I think it's too disco and by tomorrow I might hate
